Dear Parent:
    We’re asking for your assistance in completing a short (no more than 30-minute) survey to identify needs related to the education of Ohio students with sensory disabilities. Students with sensory disabilities are students with visual impairment/blindness, students with hearing impairment/deafness, and students with combined hearing-vision loss.

    This survey is being conducted on behalf of The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness (known as The Outreach Center), and the Assistive Technology & Accessible Educational Materials Center (known as AT&AEM) by WordFarmers Associates, in cooperation with the University of Dayton School of Education and Health Sciences Grant Center. Its purpose is to help The Outreach Center and the AT&AEM Center identify, prioritize, and respond effectively to statewide needs related to the education of students with sensory disabilities. Your responses are very important to districts and families in Ohio because they will be used by The Outreach Center and the AT&AEM Center to improve opportunities to learn for Ohio’s students with sensory disabilities.

    Please take a few minutes to respond to the survey, which can be accessed by clicking on this link:

    Funded by the Ohio Department of Education, The Outreach Center and the AT&AEM Center are located at and powered by OCALI (Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence). More information can be found at: and
